Land Still Needed

The Parish Council is still keen to develop a recreation area for all ages, especially as there may be grant money available to assist with this. We are seeking a plot of land suitably placed  within the parish, of a minimum quarter acre but up to half or one  acre, for purchase or long term lease.

If anyone feels they could help in this matter we would love to hear from you to discuss further, so please contact our parish clerk – Mr N Lowe, 01609 748139, or email  kffparishclerk@gmail.com

Flying the flag for sustainability - Electric Vehicle Charge Point

 Jean Morley has championed this facility which has used two grants and some of the profit from last year's community plant stall. This year, the eighth consecutive year, the plant stalls raised £7,177 for Village Hall Funds. Thanks to all the volunteers and the community who support the stall and make it such a growing success.

 

Please see the new Electric Vehicle Charger page which has information on how to use the facility.

Home Safety:

  • Throughout the year we offer free Safe and Well visits to all residents in North Yorkshire.  I have attached a poster with some more information about what we check for and how to book a visit if you would like to display these in your notice boards.  

  • As restrictions lift and more community groups start to meet I can also arrange to do a group talk about home fire safety.  My contact details are below if you know of anybody who may be interested in this.

Water Safety:

  • Prior to the summer holidays all primary schools were invited to receive a water safety presentation which included information on spotting the dangers, staying together, learning how to float if you accidently fall in the water, and when it is appropriate to ring 999

  • The Fire Service will try where possible to be visible at higher risk sites throughout the summer.  However if you have identified any local risks in your area please feel free to share this with me and we may be able to provide some posters etc to help.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

 Thank you,

Additional Flying RAF Leeming

There will be additional flying at RAF Leeming as the Station hosts exercising aircraft from September 11th to 30th 2021.

Training will involve various rotary aircraft, with some low and night flying. We understand our responsibility as good neighbours to inform the local community of such events that are additional to our normal flying activities and every effort will be made to keep the disturbance to a minimum.

Anthony's Bench

A hardwood bench commissioned by the Village Hall and supported by the Feast Committee, in memory of Anthony Barker, is now in place outside the Village Hall. Anthony was a true friend of Kirkby Fleetham and made an outstanding contribution to the village and its activities. 

A small ceremony is to take place to remember Anthony at a later date.
